Who says that popular music is not danceable?

Camagüey, Cuba, Nov 23.- Dancing with the Camagüey Symphony was possible for those attending the Principal Theatre of this city when the repertoire of Adalberto Álvarez and Juan Formell filled the cultural coliseum with novel orchestral arrangements of the local Joaquin Betancourt.

The leading violinist, orchestrator, composer, professor and musical director took part in the direction of the Camagüey’s Orchesta , a privilege he shared with Enrique Pérez Mesa, at the head of the National Symphony.

The show called Vale DOS, offered a tour of anthological themes of both authors of the traditional dance music of Cuba as Anda ven, Muévete, A bailar el toca toca and Y qué tu quieres que te den, among others.

“It’s a function to enjoy, a job to show that symphonic music can also address the popular and assemble it in just three essays a fairly complex repertoire is a great satisfaction,” said Pérez Mesa, who reported that in next days they will arrive with the show to Matanzas, Villa Clara, Holguín and Santiago de Cuba, besides the capital of the island.

For his part, Betancourt highlighted the opportunity to recognize the musical stature of two icons of Cuban creation, “they are composers who deserved to reach the symphonic format because they made the whole nation dance as authors of the most successful topics heard in the last few years, “he pointed out.

In what is marked as the first meeting of symphonic music with the popular is a healthy exercise for the dancer who can also enter the theatres to enjoy the creation. (Text and photo Diosmel Galano Oliver/Camagüey Radio) (Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
